. what came out because the same day he testified we had outgoing secretary of defense panetta, went to testify on benghazi and told us what we learned. two weeks ago, we talked last week about the difference between what panetta and clinton said about iran versus hagel, and two weeks ago when they went on "60 minutes" we called it the biggest pay off in history. in that show, i remember suggesting one of the reasons that came out of hillary clinton's testimony was interesting to pursue, what was the president doing? we now know the president wasn't engaged. they had a 5:15 minute meeting that was preplanned and he did not talk to secretary of defense, clinton, and according to panetta, talked to no one. what we have a foreign policy that is coming apart. >>gregg: you were in the carter administration. all hands on deck the. >> the president himself, for ten, 15, 20 hours a day, in the middle of the greatest moments of this, involved himself personally. we were trying to get them out the day they flew home we were there all night and the next morning up until the time of the inaugura
the benghazi attack. hagel remains in limbo, as does defense secretary leon panetta, who isn't exactly sure when he will be able to return to his california walnut groves. >> this is, i believe, my final press conference here at the pentagon briefing room. there are moments when i thought i was part of the last act of an italian opera. you're not sure exactly when it would end, and when the fat lady would sing. >> for now the only certainty is much more congressional uncertainty. joy, does leon panetta need a shirt that says "i survived a chuck hagel filibuster and all i got was this lousy t-shirt?" just when he thinks it can't get worse, it's actually seemingly gotten worse. >> this is insane. i mean, last night i went through, and i was looking at the george w. bush cabinet nominations. none of which were filibustered. just for fun. just because i knew we were talking about it. his second term cabinet nominations, the majority went through by voice vote. they didn't even bother to take a poll of the senate. people like michael mukaze sailed through and alberto gonzalez, who went to the be
them more information. they got testimony from secretary panetta and the joint chiefs chair dempsey, and they believe that added to what the public knows about benghazi and was the right way to go about this. when brennan comes up to be cia director expect another one of these circumstances but for tonight this is a setback for hagel. it's part of the process. it doesn't derail it but it's a difficult day for chuck hagel. >> kristin welker, are you hearing any reaction from the white house? >> reporter: i can tell you they're working on a statement, martin, right now. they do still continue to stand by their belief that he will ultimately be confirmed. to your point this is a blow to the white house. the president's initial pick for secretary of defense, susan rice, was derailed by the republicans, so this certainly is unwelcome news. >> kristin welker and kelly o'donnell, thank you so much. thank you for watching. chris matthews picks things up right now. >>> the war on chuck hagel. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight
with politico. good afternoon to both of you. >> hello. >> outgoing defense secretary leon panetta warned that the $85 billion in cuts would curtail american naval operations by a full third and could force furloughs of as many as 800,000 civilian workers. take a listen to what he said. >> it is difficult to believe, frankly, that congress would simply stand aside. stand aside, fail to make the decisions necessary to resolve this crisis and allow the defense economy, equality of life of america to be irreparably damaged. >> how damaging would these cuts be to our national security? >> it's a great question. the impact is going to be fairly dramatic to some of the employees, civilian employees of the pentagon and some other places. the 85 billion in cuts is through the rest of the fiscal year through september 30th and we're not even talking a full year. it's 50/50 between the defense cuts and the discretionary am doestic spending cuts and the warnings that we're hearing from experts on national security are very severe and vehement. they have told us that this will be a very significant d
secretary panetta about the continuing investigation into benghazi and revealed that the defense department spoke to the white house just once during the seven hours that the attack was going on. let's listen to that exchange that took place on capitol hill. >> talked to him on september 11th with regards to the fact that we were aware this attack was taking place. >> one time. >> right. >> you talked to him how many times. >> the same, one time. >> uma: the him they're referring to is the president, speaking just one time when that attack was going on. what was your reaction when you heard that news? >> amazing. but then again, as somebody working with the the intelligence community, i knew that information and more information's going to come out, regarding the benghazi attack, that will make them shocked. how we have been conducting and are conducting attacks or plans or projects regarding how we are defending the country. and people are going to be surprised. very surprised. >> well, i think we're also still surprised what we're hearing right now. it seems unbelievable that when you hav
operation. on wednesday, defense secretary leon panetta spoke on the thousands of cyber attacks that threatened this country every day. >> thousands of cyber attacks that are striking at the private sector, strike at silicon valley, strike at government, strike at the defense department and our intelligence agencies. and cyber is now at a point where the technology is there to cripple a country. >> well, joining us now to talk about the serious threats of secyber attacks, at the defense post naval school. dr. aquilla, great to have you with us, thank you for joining me today. [applause] >> so everybody knows, what is a cyber attack. >> a cyber attack aims to disrupt information flow. sometime the information flow, controls our power grid. sometimes it controls our financialses, our stock markets. basically everybody run by society is run by the flow, and our military. and the head of the cyber command said last summer scale of one to ten, rates america's cyber security a three. >> mike: that's not encouraging and the fact is that if we had some serious cyber war going on. this
now firing back saying outgoing defense secretary leon panetta has already testified at length about benghazi just last week and lawmakers should not play politics with critical nominations. steve centanni live with the news from washington, steve? >> reporter: yeah, there could be an attempt to hold up two important nominations. until the white house answers more questions about benghazi. now, senator lindsey graham want today know if the president worked out personally to libyan leaders during that in benghazi. he seaid that hagel and brennan could be side track until they get the answers they want. stopping short of a filibuster, graham has concerns whether the president did enough to stop the attack that killed four americans. >> i do believe if he had picked up the phone and called the libyan government these folks could have gotten to the airport out of the annex and last two guys could have been alive and if he did call the officials, and blew him off and affect whether i give foreign aid in the future to libya. if he failed to call on behalf of those under sage, a massive fai
. and panetta revealed they didn't talk for eight hours while this whole thing was going on. >> right, right, and-- >> go ahead. >> it it can be important for a president to oversee something like this. i don't know if you remember, but it was directly reagan ordering the invasion of granada and advised against it, he said no, i don't care, there are americans there, we're going in and followed it up saying, don't worry you can always trust the american people. and this is new information, now. i mean, on one hand it kind of depresses me to keep going through what a shocking outrage benghazi was because anyone who cared knew about it before the election and still obama was reelected. on the other hand, this is new information, the media was desperately trying to make sure obama got reelected. you know, maybe they wouldn't cover this now. i think whenever you talk about benghazi, it would be useful to play a little clip of hillary and susan rice claiming it was this american-- egyptian-american film maker out here in l.a. and some siller trailer he put online. they lie about this and an ameri
because they put up this resistance. first, they got testimony from secretary panetta who chuck hagel would replace and the joint chiefs chair dempsey about benghazi. that wouldn't have happened they say had they not put up this fight. today they received a letter from the white house counsel that provided more answers about the president's own involvement on september 11th and they believe that that is a credit to the white house, they've now given them that information. they're saturday for now on that. expect more questions, chris, when john brennan, the cia director nominee, comes forward. so it's a tool -- >> what do they still want to know about benghazi that can be used as a reason for this decision to hold up this confirmation? what do they still want to know? >> they want to know the name of the person who changed the talking points that were circulated and included the description of the video and a spontaneous demonstration when they've now learned through testimony that the secretary defense and the joint chiefs chair both knew almost instantly that it was terrorism. they
in the hearings. the administration has been very clear. leon panetta when he was head of the cia was clear that it is torture and the u.s. does not engage in torture. while there is a continuation of policies related to drones and targeted assassinations, i don't think that there is necessarily a continuation of or ttorture. >> well, the debate we are not having is what are the contours of this, and if we want to win hearts and minds to go back to a vietnam plauz, what are thrase, the contours of this? will it expand and come back to hit us in a strong way? >> as someone who knows the pro and con intell and we send people into the area to make people suspicious of each other, and killed people in a domestic sphere, aed on the know the ugliness and the nastiness of that and the ways in which have sat over and against any american notice that we are not the kind of country that does that, but to get on the other side of co-intel to say i need that to be reflected in the 21st history. >> and to that, brennan was the architect of the waterboarding program or in the testimony he said he was awa
of the problem with secretary of defense panetta, he's threatening to cut troop pay come on. and we have the off sets and limit building of defense bases and put that where else. and what we're looking at attempts to do-- i've been to the insides and budget games and give away the biggest things you don't want to give up and that's what they're doing here. we need to figure out a way to maintain everything we're doing in that area of the world and not jeopardize other things to develop. and one of the facts out here for the chinese, spending as much money right now on trying to find ways to have potable water for people as they are defense. so frankly, you have to look at things context. the spending in china, that much potable water they'll have a hard time doing expeditionary stuff, we have to look at everything, not just smaller cuts. >> alisyn: tony, it sounds like we can spend less, we have to spend smarter. is there waste in this day and age, and we hear about the $700 toilet seat. >> absolutely. two sources, big one, the joint ied defeat organization. billions spent and not one useful tec
is help didn't come soon enough. we heard leon panetta saying we needed 12 hours to be able to bring help. this has not been -- it's not been sourced completely. we don't know who the sources are. >>steve: there is a lot of skepticism regarding it. but keep in mind, a lot of the sources are spies. and for the most part spies don't like their names used in the papers. >> still ahead, we're getting word that pope benedict 16th is going to resign on february 28. we have the latest after the break. >>gretchen: the most memorable moment from this year's national prayer breakfast when a world-renowned doctor upstaged the president with his idea about a flat tax. is that a good idea? >>brian: stuart varney thinks so. thinks so. he explains next. but she loved it so much... i told her it was homemade. everyone tells a little white lie now and then. but now she wants my recipe [ clears his throat ] [ softly ] she's right behind me isn't she? [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup. [ clears his throat ] [ softly ] she's right behind me isn't she? how do you keep an older car runnin
there are more secrets in the movie than there are to the mission. >> i saw the retirement of leon panetta, the ceremony the other day. he was joking, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff was up there joking about "zero dark thirty." almost everything about this raid has entered into our lore. there are no new actual facts. >>gretchen: i found a lot of new interesting facts in your article. i think everyone should read it. one of which stuck in my mind is i don't think the american public understands how all of these 23 guys and the alternates there thought they were going to die that night. they all planned to die. your guy bought a $350 pair of prada sunglasses because he thought this is my last thing. he kissed his kids, thought it was the last. he called his dad. he thought of a quote from president bush after 9/11, freedom will be attacked by a faceless coward and freedom will be defended. he thought he was going to die. that is what i took away from your article. >> you're absolutely right. there was a scene that he describes where he's sitting on his kit as they are about to go
